God’s Glory Alone (The 5 Solas Series)

Gods Glory Alone CoverStatus: Available

Book Description

Historians and theologians have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations (or “solas”) that distinguished the movement from other expressions of the Christian faith.

Five hundred years later, we live in a different time with fresh challenges to our faith. yet these rallying cries of the Reformation continue to speak to us, addressing a wide range of contemporary issues. The Five Solas series will help you understand the historical and biblical context of the five solas and how to live out the relevance of Reformation theology today.

In God’s Glory Alone—The Majestic Heart of Christian Faith and Life, David VanDrunen examines how the doctrine of God’s glory developed in Reformed theology and confessions. Then, he turns to the biblical story, beginning with the pillar of cloud and fire revealed to Israel, and culminating in Christ’s Second Coming. VanDrunen concludes by looking at today’s cultural challenges—such as distraction and narcissism—reflecting on how commitment to God’s glory alone fortifies us to live godly lives in this present evil age.
